Sample at the brewpub. This beer pours a clear dark copper color with a medium light beige head that dissipates steadily. Top ring of lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malt, yeast and fruit, Medium body with flavors of sweet caramel, earthy malt, dark fruit and yeast. The finish is malty with a sweet aftertaste. Above average overall.

UPDATED: MAY 31, 2010 Very nice dubbel. Pours a very cloudy reddish-brown, coppery even. Almost no head and very light lacing. Aroma is mild and slightly fruity. Tastes a bit sweet, with caramel maltiness, and a sour/fruity component. Crisp, creamy, moderate to low carbonation, overall very enjoyable.
